XIAOMI 12T PRO
In the Xiaomi ‘T’ series T stands for Technology. ‘T’ series is more inclined towards performance. It has already been launched globally and in China. it hasn’t been launched yet in India and when it will finally come to India its name won’t be Xiaomi 12T Pro. Either it will be a Redmi K series for Xiaomi 12X or something.
In this blog we will know about the technologies, specifications, design and pricing of this phone.
INSIDE THE BOX
Big box, yes Xiaomi 12T pro comes under a big box which is a good sign of presence of Adapter.
Inside the box we get…
- Sim card tool
- Lots of documentations
- A transparent case of decent quality
- a chunky phone
- And a chunky adapter of 120W
- USB type-C to type-A cable
LOOK AND DESIGN
The phone feels like it has an old type of design, a little bit curvy from the back side. The design is the same as the smartphones which came two or three years ago. Look is also traditional. A big camera on the upper side followed by two small cameras on the lower side. It has a flat display. The frame is not metallic.
PORTS AND BUTTONS
This phone gets Harman/Kardon tuned speakers. We get a type-C charging port at the bottom base of the phone. Sim card tray is also at the bottom of the phone.
It is slighter on the heavier side. To be precise it weighs around 210 grams.
It gets gorilla glass 5 protection at the front. Build quality is sturdy.
IN HAND FEEL
In hand feel is good. It is slightly on the slippery slide. Due to the curvy design at the back, it becomes slippery.
The display is of good quality. This is a FHD++ display, a little bit lower than a 2k display in quality. The screen is 1220p in resolution. Screen to body ratio is good. Side bezels are very thin, and the chin is also very thin. Even the punch hole is also very small.
- 6.67” FHD++
- Amoled HDR10+
- 120Hz fast refresh rate
- 480Hz TSR (Touch Sampling Rate)
- 900nits Brightness
- Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection
- It comes on Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 4nm processor
- Untutu score goes up to one million
- It comes in three variants: 8GB LPDDR5 RAM/ 128GB ROM, 8GB LPDDR5 RAM/ 256GB ROM, 12GB LPDDR5 RAM/ 256GB ROM
The big battery is 5000mAh and it has 120W fast charging. In only 19 minutes it goes from 0% to 100%. So, all that is quite good.
With the power processor, when you do gaming on it, you are going to enjoy it. And the audio speakers which are tuned by Harman/Kardon provide a very good and clear sound for gunshots, etc. For multimedia use display and audio, it’s an absolutely big thumb up.
This phone has a 200-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.69 aperture, but from three-digit figure it declines straight to single digit figure for the remaining two cameras. The Ultra-wide sensor is 8 megapixels, and the macro sensor is for 2 megapixels. The 200-megapixel camera natively clicks pictures on 200 megapixel the size becomes 50 to 55 MB. You can also take a step where you can click pictures at 50-megapixel resolution. By the way if we talk about the camera then it is just like a typical Xiaomi, its primary sensor is given as 200 megapixels but there is nothing more to write or speak about
The selfie sensor in the front is 20 megapixels. The first impression of the camera is average. Some features are good like you can do 8k 20fps videography. This is only available in a few phones. There is 8k and there is a 4k 60fps option too, so that’s good. There is also super slow-motion videography with 1920fps. And all the other standard features of the camera are present too.
If you talk about sensors, almost all of them are present. It has face unlock and in display fingerprint sensor both works quite well.
It has Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, dual 4G volte and Wi-Fi calling. So, this is a global version we can’t discuss about 5G. In India if this phone gets launched then the major 5G bands with which will be supported in India will be available when it gets launched in India after rebranding. There is an IR blaster too just like many Xiaomi phones.
THERE ARE THREE VARIANTS AVAILABLE BLUE SILVER AND BLACK.
There is no IP certification, no wireless charging, no FM radio, SAR value is within limits. Wide vine L1 support is there so, it’s whitelisted and no Dolby vision.
So, this is the Xiaomi 20 Pro. It is the global version and has been launched in China but will only come to India after rebranding.
PRICE IN CHINA
In China its price is 749€. If we convert it in Indian rupees, then it becomes Rs.60k–65k which is quite expensive.
EXPECTED PRICE IN INDIA
The important thing is what will be its price in India, that is going to decide whether anyone is going to buy this or not. whether it is an interesting & exciting device or disappointing device?… What will be the price? If it comes in the price range of Rs.42-45k then it will be exciting, if it comes in the price range of Rs.45-50k then it will be interesting, but if it comes for more than Rs.50000 then it will definitely be disappointing.
The camera has its downside because it has an HP1 sensor which is a little old since HP3 has also launched. Its design is also very traditional and old school. Its price in China is very high if you convert it to Indian rupees.
If you’re looking for a better camera phone, then there are many good camera phones in this price range. The processor is good, performance is also good. So if you’re not into looks and the best camera then this phone can be considered. But at this price range which is in China, this phone is not worth for money.
